Italian researcher discovers most ancient Koran in the world

Alba Fedeli, an Italian researcher at the University of Birmingham, has discovered  the oldest fragment of the Koran in the world in the University archive. The fragment dates back to the VI or VII century: an incredible datation since, according to the Muslim tradition, the Prophet Muhammad was dictated the Holy Book by God in the VII century.

How exactly the fragment reached Birmingham was not reported. It has been in the University archive for almost a century.
